What is The Masterplan about?
The Masterplan is a tactical squad-based heist game set in 1970s. The 2D top-down view gives you a great overview of whats happening at any given moment, allowing you to be a real criminal mastermind. Features hand-drawn 2D graphics and fun group control, granting you total control - at least until someone calls the cops and everything goes haywire.
During the game youll need to heist your way through 20 unique hand-crafted heists in a persisting career mode, manage your crew from heist to heist by hiring the right goons and by making sure they are properly equipped. A test of a true mastermind will be to execute the plan to perfection, keep the goons alive, and walk away with the maximum loot from each heist.
Depending on your preference, you can hit your targets loud, or in stealth, or a mix of both. Keep the civilians under control, knock them out, or leave no witnesses. Its all up to you, just make sure you wont be there when the cops arrive - or be ready for a brutal firefight.
The Master Plan. The idea is grandiose, but there is still something lacking in its implementation. The game is a lot of fun & offers a gripping story with a surprising ending. The robberies are pretty hard after the time. In addition, the controls are sometimes quite tricky, which can spoil the robbery. Allegedly there are 2 ways to pull off the raids: Quiet and loud. The latter almost never works and ends with either escaping with only a few dollars OR the police killing the crooks. A good game in itself. Not perfect, but good. 8/10
